I had a day to myself last week and, instead of getting on with the many jobs I had, I thought I’d have a play around with my blog instead.
I updated my theme at that start of the year, but haven’t really done much logo wise with it. I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but just haven’t got round to it. I spent a little while last week playing with a site called Logojoy.
Designing your logo
Logojoy use articificial intelligence to help you to design your own logo and it’s a really simple and logical process to work through. You simply enter your brand name, in my case my blog name, and it invites you to choose five or more logos that you like from a decent selection.
The next step is to choose the colours you like. I chose purple, green and yellow and then on to choosing icons. I chose the things that represent us, books, monkey, lions and mice – the animals representing the children’s favourite cuddly toys. For this step you just pop in the search term and it returns a range of images for you to choose from.
Once you’ve done these simple steps the system creates a range of logos for you to take a look at – there are some fab ones and I really enjoyed having a look through, and actually changed my mind on the images I wanted to use. That’s not a probem though, you just enter a search term in and it generates the logo with a range of images matching the search term.
I’ve had a logo designed in the past for a different venture and it was a lot of emails back and forth to get things just right. With Logojoy it is fully customisable by you and really simple and intuitive to use. There’s the option too to see how your logo will look on business cards, adverts etc which is something I’ve struggled with in the past.
Once you’re happy with your logo there are a couple of options. The cheapest option is a download of one image and this is $20.
You might want to opt for the higher quality images which offer colour variations and a range of different formats (eps, pdf, png and svg) and this £65. This is called the premium package and it also provides you full copyright ownership as well as the option to make amends and redownload.
I was really impressed with Logojoy and I intend to have a bit more time playing around with it before I settle on my final logo choice. I can’t wait to unveil across my social media in due course!
